Halloween Trunk Show 9

LRaise your spirits this autumn in the Rockies with whispering golden aspens, historic Colorado ghost towns, and the 9th annual Halloween Trunk Show in Denver, Oct 11th.

Bindlegrim will be there, and was honored to once again have an opportunity creating graphics for this year's event, the ninth! Postcards should be mailing soon, and there was an additional order for some posters of the front image (below)... (which perhaps may find their way as door prizes at the event...? We shall see...)

The ol' grim one is scheming, and packing up a large bindle of goods for the show - lanterns, cards, books, and the newest creations like the eight-limbed monster votive, and  a lantern wall hook. And while some of the free goodies (running low) were pulled from Bindlegoods to make sure stock was available for Denver - all purchased orders from the website will still be honored in the meantime. Please also note that the Bindlegoods online store will cease shipping Spooklights for the current season around mid-October (to ensure all orders are out the door before the Halloween holiday) so please plan orders early... or see you at the show!!!

Updates on Bindlegood's Spooklights

A quick update on what's happening on Bindlegoods:

The newest addition to the Spooklights line, this "haunted tree" lamp base (candlestick) is now available (picture below). Just like the previous base (featuring a trick-or-treat scene) this will also pair perfectly with the lamp shade (pendant lamp cover).

The newest Spooklight Halloween decoration features a haunted tree lamp base that pairs with a four-sided lantern shade.

Another view of paper art by Bindlegrim features a craggy old tree silhouette which can be used as candlestick or as base for lamp shade.

The second item (not quite ready) is this monster candle-votive that is a hybrid of German-style Halloween lanterns that has morphed at bottom into a creature that now stands on eight legs. The images here show the first test offering a giant eyeball... although I'm not sure I'm quite pleased with this as a pane option. News to follow - on facebook, twitter, and on the online store Bindlegoods.

Goodnight Sweet Creeps

Thank you again all who stopped by Bindlegrim's 2nd annual summer sale and helped find new homes for all those wayward Creeps! It was great seeing original Bindlegrim buyers, and new alike catching these sales. And I got a nice surprise this year seeing one of the proto-type Spooklights (care of Horrid Decor) hang-out with new and vintage Halloween in the new owner's photograph!

It was especially gratifying because the Creeps had such a late birth last year (days even before the holiday arrived) so it feels good to know they will share there glow this year in Halloween across the states. That's why I wanted to get the Spooklights out early this year, and so happy to see many were already grabbed by early decorators. I'm working as fast I can to get the full line created, and as of this week should see a couple more designs hit the Bindlegoods store - the tree lamp base, and the octopi votive.

In the meantime, I have been having fun with some graphics for the upcoming Halloween Trunk Show that occurs in Denver every year - this year is the 9th...! More details to follow...!

Farewell to Summer (Sale Final Week)

A gargantuous thank-you to all who attended this year's online summer sale of Bindlegrim's past designs 2013, and to those who shared with others... much appreciated...! Wrapping up the last week this Sunday August 10th, 2014 having bid farewell to much of the Creeps pictured below... except for the following:

Spooky holiday creations - gift boxes, lanterns, books, postcards - by artist Bindlegrim 2014 summer sale

1) Vintage-Style Halloween CREEPS #2/5 Silhouette Set Candy-Box Vellum-Eye Lantern

Vintage-style candy-container lanterns from the Creeps (Silhouette Version) #2/5 from a limited run of five signed and sealed during production. The same characters are also found on the 12-sided lantern in listing 2. The design features classic slot-and-tab containers to hold treats, and as an open-top box doubles in function as a lantern. I imagine these (in the photo I failed capture before all were sealed) set for a gruesome table of six at a cool ghoul Hallowe'en party. (You can see various photos of the Creeps here on flickr:

Black silhouette spooky decor for table settings at Halloween feature set of 6 - cat, pumpkin, devil, witch, scarecrow, clown.

Set #2/5 signed Halloween art borders between industrial process and hand-crafted paper goods.

2) Vintage-Style Halloween CREEPS 2/5 Artist Signed 12-Pane Lantern Limited-Edition

The last available listing for this edition --- one vintage-style 12-sided lantern Creeps #2/5. If you've been keeping track of the 12-sided editions, this was #8 in the Bindlegrim series of lanterns (and was a special edition only for the 2013 year), with the panes inspired by the Creeps (Container-Lanterns). I imagine (again in that missed photo opportunity) this lantern hanging as centerpiece to the table of candy-boxes above listed. You can see various photos of the Creeps here on flickr:

Thank you again to all those who found new homes for the various Creeps (and other studio oddities) from the 2013 bindle of forgotten goods. I haven't a clue what will appear next year... but stay tuned for the new designs completing the Spooklight series at There's bound to be a few mysterious products that are created in the lab along the way... or perhaps even the remaining stock of Spooklights should they suffer discontinuing before next year's summer sale...
